Iced Green Tea Latte

Soooo......I've been obsessed with iced green tea lattes for awhile now. I feel like I'm keeping Starbucks in business with the amount I've been purchasing. I have to admit, I can't get enough of them. I even found some green tea latte candies while I was visiting Savannah. I was thrilled!

When we still lived in Portland I decided it was time to start making my own iced green tea lattes at home. I found some Matcha powder (aka green tea latte powder) from our favorite international grocery called Uwajimaya.

I couldn't read most of what the package said (hello!), but after some experimenting, I figured out the right amount of water and milk to create the perfect green tea latte (for me at least!).

If you enjoy green tea lattes and can find some Matcha powder.....give this a try. Your pocket book will thank you.

Servings: 1

1 green tea latte packet
1/4 cup boiling water
3/4 cup milk

Bring 1/4 cup water to a boil. Pour powder into cup. Pour boiling water over powder and let completely dissolve. Stir well. Add 3/4 cup cold milk. Put in fridge or freezer until desired temperature is reached. If you want to drink right away, just add ice. Personally, I like to put in the fridge or freezer because ice dilutes the flavor. Optional: add some fun flavored syrups like mint, peppermint, vanilla or almond.

Step by Step
 It's as simple as that! 

No surprise, after looking at these pictures I'm craving an iced green tea latte. I could be headed to the kitchen to make one...
